My List on Netflix

Hey, there’s a contest at the end of this post! But read it first! 🙂

[twitter]I love having the “My List” feature on Netflix. Every now and again, I browse the offerings on Netflix and bookmark things for later viewing. It’s a mix of documentaries, spy movies, stuff for the kids, tv shows, and utter and complete randomness.

A friend in a Facebook group recently asked users to serve up what they had waiting in their ‘queue’ and I found it a great way to discover new content to add to the list. It’s like sharing your home screen on your smartphone to see what apps other people use the most.

Here are 31 titles waiting in my Netflix My List, I’d love it if you would add a few of what you have bookmarked for later viewing in the comments so we can get new ideas of fresh and interesting content! My List is long, it seems I’m adding more to it than I am pulling from it to watch, but here are the ones I’m looking forward to the most and need to watch next:

MUSIC

Yes. I have a Backstreet Boys: Show Em What You’re Made Of sitting at the top of my Netflix My List. I host That 90s Show on Z95-3 in Vancouver, so this is mandatory research. I also lived and worked through the heart of their career, so I’d love to get behind the scenes. To balance this out, I also have the new Keith Richards documentary, one on The Eagles, and Muscle Shoals, a documentary on the legendary music studio responsible for everything from The Rolling Stones to Lynyrd Skynrd on My List.

FOOD AND DRINK AND TRAVEL

I’ll watch anything about Everest. Along with setting a Guinness World Record, Mount Everest is one of those mythical dreams from my childhood.  I’ll devour all the documentaries about the mountain, and mountain climbing. Many of them are emotional, beautiful, and heart pounding.My wife is in wine sales, so I have SOMM, a documentary on sommeliers trying to pass a Master Sommelier wine exam, waiting for me. This week I just added A Year in Champagne, The Mind of a Chef, and Departures.

BIOGRAPHIES

I just finished Tig. I had it in my queue for weeks after seeing people rave about it on social. If you’re having a bad day and want to make lemons from lemonade, dig into her incredible story. I’ve started and stopped Starring Adam West to learn more about the real Batman and this week just added Life Itself about Roger Ebert to my stack.

JOURNALISM

I like brainfood. Documentaries are a great way to learn (from a certain point of view) and I’m quick to dig into them.  I’ve got Please Subscribe (about the secret lives of YouTubers), The True Cost (about overseas clothing manufacturing), Planet Earth (the remarkable BBC series), and The Battered Bastards of Baseball (about a minor league baseball team of misfits) all on my list for when I feel like learning something.

TV SERIES

Netflix produces some incredible tv and is also turning out to be a great place to binge watch other series that I might have missed. Hell On Wheels is shot in the badlands around Calgary and is being hailed as saving our film and television industry. I’d love to throw it some love and learn more of the history of how the railroad built our continent. I have other series like Sherlock, Sense8, and episodes waiting for me to crack open. Then there are the shows I’m already hooked on, have seen, and love. Orange Is The New Black and The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt, Bloodline, and Narcos are there waiting for new episodes.

MOVIES

I have had The Intouchables in my queue for a while, I’ve wanted to see it for much longer. It’s a French film about a rich aristocrat who becomes a quadriplegic and his caregiver is an ex-con. It’s joined by other highly celebrated dramas like Foxcatcher, Wolf of Wall Street, and Nightcrawler in my queue. Interstellar was just added to Netflix at the beginning of September, so it’s in there too.

OLD SCHOOL

I like flipping through the Netflix archives and finding really old stuff I enjoyed as a kid and then want to bring to my kids. Believe it or not, I’ve never seen The Goonies and I started to watch it with the kids this weekend. As my guys get ready for Star Wars in December, I’m also introducing them to other space adventures, like Star Trek TNG. There’s 7 seasons of Jean Luc Picard asking for “tea, Earl Grey, hot” for you to enjoy. And then Disney classics like Honey I Shrunk The Kids is sitting there waiting for a cold and wet fall night to snuggle under the blankets.

That’s a long list and it’s STILL only a bit of what’s next on my Netflix My List and I’m always adding to it.

What do you have on your list that you’re looking forward to seeing? Maybe you’ve got something you just saw that everyone else should add to their list. Go ahead and give me your top 3 Netflix suggestions and you could win a popcorn popper, bowl, and popcorn to get cozy this fall with Netflix!

    I highly recommend Interstellar, which I watched for the second time two nights ago. Also Cowspiracy is a must watch documentary about the effect livestock have on our environment. And finally I recommend Nightcrawler, which I was surprised that I liked so much. There’s my three!

    Suits, Sherlock and Pretty Little Liars are my top three picks.

    We watched Cowspiracy a couple nights ago, that was great. Casting By, and we’re currently watching Narcos.

    Also, I needed a good cry yesterday, so I watched Fox & the Hound.
